Headquartered in Plano, Texas, AnX Robotica brings versatility in the development and integration of technologies including precise magnetic control, in house ASIC design, artificial intelligence, micro-optical imaging, image processing, and wireless transmission to improve care for patients. With more than 200 patents granted or applications pending, and dozens of clinical papers published in major international journals, AnX Robotica, together with its sister company, have become a leading robotic capsule technology company.
Our company’s roots go back to 2008, when our founders began designing and building the basic Robotic Capsule Endoscopy technology in Silicon Valley. With the vision to develop and manufacture advanced medical devices for diagnosing and treating digestive diseases, they established ANKON Medical Technologies in 2009, which was the first company in the world to commercialize a “Magnetically Controlled Capsule Endoscope System.”
In 2019, U.S. based AnX Robotica established a commercial agreement to share products and technologies with ANKON.
