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 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 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 generation
of RoboCourier^TM to Swisslog Healthcare Solutions (HCS) for use 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 and
quality improvements such as: reduced time spent walking, improved flow and
minimized distractions, thus allowing staff to focus on patient-care tasks.
Ultimately, RoboCourier helps hospitals reduce operational costs by increasing
efficiency, improving workflow, and maximizing operational capacity.

"The new generation of RoboCourier offers several new features making it an
even stronger fit for the industry," states Sandy Agnos, Swisslog's Autonomous
Mobile Robot (AMR) Product Manager. "It is available both in an open
multiple-shelf version and in a closed, secure version.Options include door
and elevator interface and call buttons, which enable the vehicle to
self-navigate from area to area and floor to floor. Because it is built upon
Adept's new Lynx^TM 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
capacity."

RoboCourier will be on display at the Swisslog booth 4408 at the AACC Clinical
Lab Expo in Houston TX, July 28 through August 1.
