Kraig Biocraft Laboratories Inc., developer of advanced spider silk-based fibers, announces that its pilot production program has successfully produced a sufficient quantity of Monster Silk™ cocoons to allow it to make its first textile prototypes.
The cocoons still need to be reeled and processed into yarn before the first prototype and sample textiles can be produced, but the company is ahead of its textile production schedule. The first textiles are scheduled for mechanical testing of the properties of recombinant spider silk in various textile knits and/or weaves.
Kraig Biocraft Laboratories Inc. develops genetically engineered spider silk-based fiber technologies. The company has achieved a series of scientific breakthroughs in the area of spider silk technology.
