Abstract
X-ray microscopy of biological specimens is discussed with respect to the observation in a hydrated condition. Most of the possible problems could be circumvented if a single exposure of short-pulsed intense x rays is used. For this purpose laser plasma x rays are the most suitable x ray source. The results for the observation of hydrated human chromosome fibers by x-ray contact microscopy with laser plasma x rays indicated that x-ray microscopy has a big potential to reveal intact live structure of biological specimens at high resolution.
