filterable

 [fil´ter-ah-b'l, fil´trah-b'l]
capable of passing through the pores of a filter; usually referring to living infectious agents such as viruses that can pass through a filter that retains the usual pathogenic bacteria. This attribute was key in the initial discovery of viruses.

fil·tra·ble

, filterable (fil'tră-bĕl, fil'ter-ă-bl),
Capable of passing a filter; frequently applied to smaller viruses and some bacteria.
