Recent results demonstrating the feasibility of developing x-ray resistant fluorescent probes based on lanthanides linked to secondary antibodies and other probe molecules are reported. Using scanning x-ray microscope at the National Synchrotron Light Source equipped with a low noise, high efficiency photo-avalanche diode detector for visible light single photon counting, it is demonstrated that the labels based on terbium and europium chelates continue to yield useful luminescence even after 1010 rad doses of 31.5 angstroms soft x-rays.
