We installed new focusing microbeam system at a vertical beam line of AVF cyclotron of TIARA, JAEA. New system is equipped with a quadruplet quadrupole lens system for higher spatial resolution and with an X, Y beam scanner for fast hitting of single ion to micron scaled samples like a biological cell. In vacuum, a microbeam generated by the system had spatial resolution of less than 1 $$mu$$m. The beam was extracted into the atmosphere, and its spatial distribution of ion was observed by irradiating ion track detector, CR39, at just beneath a vacuum window made by Kapton film of 8 $$mu$$m thick. The spatial resolution of beam extracted in air was less than 5 $$mu$$m, indicating that finer microbeam was generated by new focusing microbeam system. New cell targeting system for this microbeam system, which is designed to target and irradiate biological materials more precisely, is currently under development.
