AQ BioMed, Inc, is a privately held biomedical device company located in Boulder, Colorado
AQ BioMed has made new discoveries about how cells respond to chemical interactions and physical forces caused by biomedical implants. Using this knowledge, we are developing unique biocompatible materials and geometric designs that work with the body. This revolutionary approach can be applied across a wide range of technologies, including stents, shunts, artificial organs, and drug delivery devices, to make these implants more effective and longer lasting.
Our first product is the AQ shunt, uniquely designed to control over-pressurization inside the eye caused by glaucoma and prevent the onset of blindness. We are also currently developing bio-friendly coating materials for cardiovascular stents that prevent restenosis, and modifications for implanted drug delivery devices to prevent scarring and clogging.
