Colibri Heart Valve LLC (“Colibri”) is a privately held medical device company based in Broomfield, CO that researches and develops novel heart valve technologies. Colibri has developed a pre-mounted, pre-crimped, and pre-packaged, ready-for-use transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) device called the “Colibri TAVI System.”
Colibri’s advanced technology is a culmination of over 10 years of research and development by Colibri’s founders, Dr. David Paniagua and Dr. R. David Fish into the tissue, valve design, frame, and delivery catheter. The Company’s unique tissue processing method produces extremely strong, durable, and biocompatible tissue. The proprietary tissue enables loading, crimping, and packaging of the Colibri valve at manufacture, making in-procedure valve rinsing and loading at time of use unnecessary. The “Colibri TAVI System” is designed to be shipped ready-for-use. Colibri’s corporate headquarters and pre-commercialization facilities are located in Broomfield, Colorado with R&D located in Houston, Texas. Colibri technology is protected by both trade secrets and issued and pending patent applications with priority claims and content dating back to January 4, 2002.
