Agilent - Varian timeline

Agilent Vacuum Products Division, formerly Varian Vacuum, has always been in the forefront of vacuum technology, setting industry standards beginning with the invention of the ion pump that made UHV possible, through major developments in diffusion pump and leak detection technology and innovations in turbomolecular and dry scroll pumping, up to the most recent revolutionary TwisTorr FS turbo pump and IDP-15 dry scroll pump.

As Agilent/Varian is a pioneer in vacuum technology, many of our inventions, like the first ion pump created by Varian in the late ‘50s, have become standards in this industry. We continue to study and develop new solutions, partnering with our Customers and with the major Research Centers worldwide.
