Most all VRV and mini split air conditioner filters are washable and can trap mircobial and bacteria. Using a filter cleaner like Chinook by Errecom can help reduce filter contaminants. Spray the filter generously on both sides, shake off excessive cleaner and let dry. Chinook has a slight neutral odour that dissipates quickly. If the filter is extremely dirty, it may have to be blown out with compressed air or flushed with water before applying Chinook.
Chinook is sold by Cool Air Products in North America https://www.coolairproducts.net/chinook-1lt/
