Lake Shore—As Seen on TV

If you watch the NOVA show on PBS, you may have spotted one of our Model 336 temperature controllers on Wednesday night (October 30th, 2013).


The NOVA episode, “Making Stuff Colder,” is part of a four-part NOVA special airing. This episode explores how “the scientists and engineers who are plunging to the bottom of the temperature scale” are  creating cutting-edge cold science that helps with the treatment of trauma patients and other technological innovations. Lake Shore’s controller makes its appearance at the 34:10 mark when host and New York Times technology columnist David Pogue witnesses a liquid helium demonstration by University of Houston researcher Melissa Gooch.

We were pleased to see the popular NOVA show explaining cold science in a fun and educational way that the general public can appreciate.


  1. “Making Stuff ______” is a great series, and it’s cool to see the Lake Shore controller in action. Hope to see more of this.

    1. Thanks Marina! We liked the series too and were, of course, very pleased to see our controller in the show.
