In 2003-2007, we had performed an experiment to synthesize an element 113 by a $$^{209}$$Bi$$+$$ $$^{70}$$Zn reaction using a gas-filled recoil ion separator (GARIS) at RIKEN Nishina-Center. In a total of 241 days of net irradiation time experiment, two decay chains were observed and assigned from an isotope $$^{278}$$113. The cross section of the $$^{209}$$Bi($$^{70}$$Zn,n)$$^{278}$$113 reaction was determined to be 31$$^{+40}_{-20}$$ fb at that time. In order to increase the statistics of the decay property, we continued to produce more decay chains. The experiment was carried out from January 7 to March 31, 2008. The experimental conditions were identical to those used in the previous experiment. $$^{70}$$Zn ion beam of 353 MeV was extracted from RILAC. The net irradiation time was 83 days and the total dose of $$^{70}$$Zn was 2.28$$times10^{19}$$. In the present expriment any candidate of $$^{278}$$113 was not observed. Then combining the results of the present and previous experiments, the production cross section of $$^{278}$$113 was determined to be 22$$^{+29}_{-19}$$ fb.
