ANN ARBOR, Mich., Oct. 31, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (OTCQB:KBLB) (“Company”), the leading developer of spider silk based fibers, today announced it has created a new line of genetically engineered silkworms that rival the Company’s Dragon Silk™ for the title as world’s strongest and most flexible recombinant spider silk. Based on early testing results, this new line has a high probability of delivering performance exceeding that of the record setting Dragon Silk line announced in 2015. Over the next several months the Company will conduct a thorough evaluation and performance comparison between these two incredible materials.
“This brand new transgenic is the result of more than a year of dedicated development and thousands of individual microinjections,” said COO Jon Rice. “We used a completely different approach in designing this new line to solving the challenge of commercially scalable spider silk. This different approach is perhaps most significant because it offers the possibility to create a super hybrid by merging it with Dragon Silk and other strains.”
“Even as we ramp up the production of Dragon Silk™ to fulfil our government contract and supply product for industry, we are inventing the next generation of materials to penetrate new markets,” said Company Founder and CEO Kim Thompson. “This laboratory breakthrough, so close on the heels of the launching of our production facility, emphasizes our lead in this burgeoning field,” continued Thompson.
