Millipore makes tissue culture plate inserts, with different types of filter
material and different pore sizes, that can be inserted into dishes for
culturing cells.  It's called "Millicell" in their catalog, and there are
quite a few different types (size, pore size, filter type).

Someone in our lab successfully used them for coculture experiments a while
back, for what it's worth..
