Answer: If you are careful with the seedlings you can separate and replant them. You'll need to work quickly so the roots don't dry out. I use toothpicks, one in each hand to separate intertwined roots. When you handle the seedlings, do so by the leaves, not by the stems. A plant can replace a damaged leaf but if you crush the stem, the plant will die. Just take the clump out of the tray or pot and lay it on its side. Use the toothpicks to separate the plants and then pot them up in moistened potting soil. Be sure to set them at the same soil level as they were growing before. Good luck with your project!
