It is possible to prepare replicas on polyester filters, although this
probably only works for fibroblast-like cells. I have used this with CHO and
it works well:

Alternatively, you can seed cells at low density in microtest plates. As the
number of cells per well follow a Poisson distribution, some wells will have
no cells whereas others will have more than one. See the following reference
for an example:
