I cut cells grown on membranes pretty often and just process them along with the other tissue. I usually put the membranes into a histoscreen cassette - don't wrap it or put anything on top of the membrane.
On embedding I usually cut the membrane into 2-3 sections and embed standing up to see the cells and how they attach to the membrane.
Works well - no problems.
