Aethon Inc. provides robotic hospital delivery and asset management solutions to hospitals in the United States. Its products include an automated robotic delivery system that transports scheduled and on-demand deliveries of material, medications, and meals between all ancillary, support, and patient care units; an asset tracking application that leverages interference-free radio frequency identification technology to locate tagged missing equipment throughout the hospital; and a pharmacy chain of custody solution for medications.

The company’s products are used in dietary/food services, environmental services, pharmacies, nursing, labs, distribution, and asset management.

The company’s automated robotic delivery system, the TUG, has been listed as one of Infomration Week‘s Top Ten Medical Robots that Could Change Health Care. MedEx, Aethon’s real-time medication tracking and chain-of-custody software, is the only system that utilizes passive RFID and barcode technologies to provide real-time status of deliveries made by technicians, pneumatic tube or the TUG.

Aethon Inc. was formerly known as Probotics Inc. and changed its name to Aethon Inc. in August 2001. The company was founded in 1997 and is based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
