Provided is an organic electroluminescent element containing a flexible substrate having thereon a first electrode layer, an organic layer unit containing a light-emitting layer formed on the first electrode layer, and a second electrode layer formed on the organic layer unit, wherein the organic electroluminescent element emits light to an outside of the organic electroluminescent element with a light distribution property of the emitted light satisfying the following relationships of: 0.85 L2/L1 1.20; and L3/L1 0.45, provided that L1 is a front luminance, L2 is a luminance of view angle 20 degrees, and L3 is a luminance of view angle 60 degrees.


Provided are: a phosphor-integrated nanoparticle labeling agent which is capable of yielding a sufficient signal intensity even when its final concentration in an immunofluorescent staining reaction system is low (e.g., 0.02 nM) and enables to obtain an immunofluorescently stained image with reduced noise by inhibiting non-specific adsorption of a probe biological substance and a label to substances other than a detection subject; and an immunostaining method using the same. The phosphor-integrated nanoparticle labeling agent is a set which includes: a probe biological substance 3, which is linked to a first binding group substance A via a first hydrophilic polymer-derived spacer 1 having a length of 30 to 1,000 and specifically binds to a biomolecule 2; and a phosphor-integrated nanoparticle 5, which has a second binding group substance B capable of specifically binding to the first binding group substance A.
