Adept Technology Delivers New Generation of Autonomous Mobile Robots to Swisslog

30% Increase in Productivity Reported by Hospital Laboratories and Independent Commerical Laboratories

PLEASANTON, Calif., July 25, 2013 -- Adept Technology, Inc.

(Nasdaq:ADEP), a leading provider of intelligent robots and autonomous
mobile solutions and services, today announced that it has delivered a new

in hospitals, clinical laboratories and pharmacies for the transport of
specimens, medications and supplies.

Swisslog's RoboCouriers have been in operation in hospitals and commercial
laboratories across North America for over three years. Hospitals realize
the benefit of using the RoboCourier because it fits well into Lean process

upon Adept's new LynxTM platform, battery life has a 3X improvement and
navigation has been optimized to meet increasingly demanding requirements of
the environment."

"We are extremely pleased with our joint collaboration on the development of
the next generation of the RoboCourier," states Larry Anderson, Adept vice
president of Mobile. "Through partnerships like these we are able to help
our customers realize significant operational efficiencies and improved

RoboCourier will be on display at the Swisslog booth 4408 at the AACC
