Graphical Abstract

“A Study in Scarlet” by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was a detective novel introducing Sherlock Holmes (who was fond of chemistry) and the magnifying glass as an investigative contraption. Color, chemistry, and contraption all relate to the picture, which shows one of the best red-emitting rhodamine dyes described by C. A. Wurm, V. N. Belov, S. W. Hell et al. in their Full Paper on page 12986 ff. The tubular network in a cell was stained with the dye and imaged in a modern light microscope, a refinement of the magnifying glass, as well as by STED microscopy.
