To identify individual cells exposed to a X-ray microbeam in a cell population, we developed a biocompatible microchamber-array chip using UV lithography of photopolymer SU-8. The center-to-center distance between microchambers is 50 mum including a wall of 15 mum height. Using the microchamber-array chip, we performed tracking of individual exposed cells. Sample cells loaded in a microchamber array were selectively irradiated with the X-ray microbeam under microscopic observation. All the irradiated cells were indexed by the array arrangement of the microchambers. For about 24 h of post-irradiation incubation, the irradiated cells were identified successfully by time-lapse observation. In addition, the induction of radiation effects was observed in identified cells using immunofluorescence.
