Kraig Biocraft accelerates development of spider silk fibers from a day to minutes

September 22, 2018 |

In Michigan, Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc., a leading developer of spider silk based fibers implemented two major advancements in the development of next generation recombinant spider silk fibers. These advancements are the result of new equipment and recently employed protocols at their R&D headquarters in Michigan. These new approaches build on the existing protocols, but allow the Company to increase processing efficiency significantly. Kraig Biocraft expects to see higher throughput as this approach should result in shorter times to generate new transgenics. What previously took an entire day to complete can now be done in a matter of minutes.

The Company expects that, with these new methods, it will be able to drastically accelerate the pace of development for next generation recombinant spider silk fibers and technologies, but does not affect the opening of the Company’s aggressive production operations through its Vietnamese subsidiary, Prodigy Textiles.  The Company expects to provide an update on its progress at Prodigy Textiles in the near future.
