We have established a single cell irradiation system, which allows selected cells to be individually hit with defined number of heavy charged particles, using a collimated heavy-ion microbeam apparatus at JAEA-Takasaki. This system has been developed to study radiobiological processes in hit cells and bystander cells exposed to low dose and low dose-rate high-LET radiations, in ways that cannot be achieved using conventional broad-field exposures. Using this system, we have demonstrated heavy-ion induced bystander effects on Chinese hamster ovary cells and normal human foreskin fibroblast AG01522 cells. The outlines of these direct investigation of cell-to-cell communications will be introduced, and the current status of the development of focused heavy-ion microbeam from AVF cyclotron at JAEA-Takasaki will also be discussed.
