National Geographic Channel Show Turns to Thermo Fisher Scientific to Learn about Ultrapure Water

“Going Deeper with David Rees” explores the properties of ultrapure water in a quest for perfect ice

WALTHAM, Mass.--()--A new National Geographic channel series, Going Deeper with David Rees, will feature an interview with a Thermo Fisher Scientific water purification expert along with a Thermo Scientific ultrapure water system in its debut episode, “How to Make an Ice Cube.”

To make the perfect ice, host David Rees hypothesizes that he could use laboratory-grade ultrapure water, devoid of any impurities, which is used in analytical and life science applications, ranging from biopharmaceuticals to semiconductor manufacturing.

He interviews Kim Knepper, pre-sales support specialist for Thermo Scientific laboratory equipment at Thermo Fisher Scientific, to discuss the properties of ultrapure water. They employ the Thermo Scientific Barnstead Smart2Pure water purification system, which filters out nearly all impurities—minerals, bacteria, and particulates—to dispense water that is essentially its core elements of hydrogen and oxygen.

“Our ultrapure water systems play a very important role in serious science, but we enjoyed participating in a lighthearted look at the topic,” said Julie Foster, Ph.D., global product manager, water purification, for Thermo Fisher Scientific. “As the world leader in serving science, Thermo Fisher seeks opportunities to make science relevant and fun.”

The episode will air on the National Geographic Channel on Monday, July 14, at 10 p.m. EST (check local listings). View a clip here: http://channel.nationalgeographic.com/channel/going-deep-with-david-rees/videos/ultra-pure-water/?source=searchvideo.

The complete portfolio of Thermo Scientific Barnstead water systems includes ultrapure lab water systems for ultra-sensitive applications, pure water and reverse osmosis systems to provide purified water for lab equipment, and cartridges for specific contaminant removal needs.
