CNAO (National Centre of Oncological Hadrontherapy) is an innovative and technologically advanced clinical facility in Pavia, Italy for treating radio-resistant or inoperable tumors with carbon ions and protons.

The CNAO Synchrotron has been designed and built specifically for tumours treatment and it is one of the five centers in the world able to deliver carbon ions, which are the most powerful particles for tumours treatment.

It has been realized in collaboration with the National Institute of Nuclear Physics, CERN of Geneva and other national and international institutes and universities.

Agilent Ion Pumps provide the optimum clean UHV condition for this and many other similar applications all over the world.
