The Pittcon Heritage Award

Walter Supina and Nicholas Pelick
Supelco
Presentation: Monday, March 18, 4:45 pm
Room: Grand Hall, Ballroom B

In the 1960s, when chromatography was early in its commercial application, Walt and Nick formed Supelco to become pioneers at serving customers with the consumables; the columns, standards, reagents, and accessories, to exploit the power and versatility of this emerging analytical technique.
Supelco’s growth tracked the emerging chromatography field. Its many firsts to the market highlighted by innovations around particles, columns, surface chemistry, and devices that solved particular analytical challenges their customers were facing. The innovations developed at Supelco as a result of Walt and Nick’s passion for the customer and technical leadership are extensive. Their legacy lives on today as the Supelco brand within Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany.

Walter Supina and Nicholas Pelick are receiving this award in recognition of their founding of Supelco which has provided scientists and technologists with the tools needed for discovery for over 50 years.

Robert G.W. Anderson, President of the Science History Institute, will present the award to Dick Supina, son of Walter Supina.
