Kraig Biocraft Laboratories Announces BAM-1 Spider Silk Hybrids are in Production

ANN ARBOR, Mich., – June 3, 2024 –Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (OTCQB: KBLB) (“the Company” or “Kraig Labs”), announces today that Kraig Labs is now in production with its BAM-1 recombinant spider silk hybrids. The Company originally planned this launch for July, but the resounding successes of the production trials positioned Kraig Labs to accelerate its 2024 production schedule.

This production cycle serves as a critical transition for the Company’s commercialization of sustainable and cost-effective spider silk production. This announcement marks the Company’s first transition of true production hybrids to the manufacturing environment. This rearing cycle also represents more than a 10X increase in production over the spring trials and is the largest single batch of spider silk production in the Company’s operating history.

The BAM-1 hybrids exhibited an excellent hatching yield and continue to show strong and uniform growth. The Company’s team has been closely monitoring their health and is proud to report that, just like the spring trials,  it has not observed any sign of disease or weakness within the colony.

The BAM-1 hybrids were created by integrating the Company’s recombinant spider silk technology, Dragon SilkTM, into two robust commercial silkworm strains. These two silkworm strains created the parental lines that, when combined, produce the BAM-1 hybrids. The BAM-1 hybrids result in the largest cocoons and most robust silkworms Kraig Labs has producedThis, in turn, results in higher silk yield and improved production efficiency, while maintaining fiber material performance, as the Company scales up its spider silk production operations.

“This successful launch of the BAM-1 hybrids is the result of more than a year of focused development by our team. The spring production trials demonstrated that we have brought together the right team, the right technology, and the right facilities to make 2024 a breakout year for the commercialization of spider silk,” said Founder and CEO of Kraig Labs, Kim Thompson. “This cycle puts us securely on the path to reaching our first production milestone of a metric ton of spider silk.”

Over the coming weeks, the Company will provide additional updates on this production cycle and its plans for continued production growth and end-market developments.

Kraig Biocraft Laboratories Spring Production Trials Exceed Expectations for the Production of the Company’s Recombinant Spider Silk

ANN ARBOR, Mich., – May 6, 2024 –Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (OTCQB: KBLB) (“the Company” or “Kraig Labs”), announces today that the spring production trials of the Company’s new BAM-1 hybrid parental strains have concluded, exceeding all expectations for scale, performance and robustness.

Kraig Labs reports that the spring production trials were an unabashed success. These trials proved that the Company’s BAM-1 recombinant spider silk hybrids are ready for rapid production expansion. Simply stated, this has been the most fruitful and successful production cycle in the Company’s history.

Renowned sericulture expert and Kraig Labs executive consultant, Dr. Nirmal Kumar, oversaw the production cycle from start to finish, including rearing and selective breeding. Careful and meticulous testing throughout the entire production trial demonstrated that the BAM-1 parental lines were the strongest and most resilient lines Kraig Labs has ever developed.

Observation and screening conducted throughout all phases of production exceeded all expectations for health and vigor within the colony. Not a single instance of disease or infection was detected at any point during the entire cycle. This result surprised local silkworm experts observing the trials. Working with mundane silkworms, they had never experienced an entire production cycle from egg to egg without any disease in a batch of thousands of silkworms. 

Under the guidance of Dr. Nirmal Kumar and through a meticulous, statistically-based selective breeding protocol, the parental strains for the BAM-1 hybrid were further optimized during the production cycle. The enhancements to the parental lines from this careful breeding program were designed to deliver larger cocoons with improved reeling characteristics and higher yields.   

“I am proud of the work accomplished and very impressed by the performance of the BAM-1 silkworm lines,” Dr. Nirmal Kumar, stated. “The luster of the BAM-1 silk is very unique and desirable. When paired with its strength, we have created a silk that can’t be matched. The results of these trials exceeded our expectations. We are now on a solid foundation to scale production of the BAM-1 hybrid to metric ton levels.”

 “The BAM-1 parental lines have proven to be the strongest and most resilient we have ever fielded,” said Company founder and CEO, Kim Thompson. “This production run greatly exceeded our targets and has prepared us for the next phase of our business plan. With these production trials successfully concluded, we are now aggressively implementing the next phase of our business plan, which will expand our operations and target multiple production locations in multiple countries.”

Thompson and Dr. Nirmal Kumar have spent the last two months directly overseeing these trials, selecting facilities for expansion, reviewing operational protocols, and meeting with officials and business leaders regarding the Company’s immediate plans. Thompson is now returning to the U.S. to enact the next stages of its spider silk production expansion plan and complete the Company’s transition from a technology developer to a large-scale spider silk manufacturer.

Kraig Labs has successfully produced cocoon at rates that exceeded all expectations and control parameters for these trials.

Under the supervision and guidance of a top independent sericulture expert, Dr. Nirmal Kumar, whom the Company brought in to oversee these trials, Kraig Labs has now finished the critical rearing stage for both parental strains of the BAM-1 hybrid. Each parental strain was divided into two batches, creating a total of four separate production trial groups. The result was an absolute success, with all four production batches achieving excellent growth rates and nearly perfect cocooning.

“I am very impressed with the robustness of the BAM-1 parental lines,” said Dr. Nirmal Kumar. “The colony has exhibited perfect health and grown very quickly. The team’s rearing skills are rapidly advancing, and they are ready to increase production. Based on what I have observed from rearing this first generation, I expect that the Company will have a very successful production scale-up.”

The launch of these operations, after careful preparation and under the supervision of a renowned sericultural expert, demonstrated that the BAM-1 parental lines meet the performance and robustness necessary for large-scale production. With the successful completion of cocooning, the Company can confirm that the BAM-1 line has proven it is ready for scale-up. Over the next two weeks the Company will collect the moths from these cocoons to breed the next generation of production hybrid silkworms and conclude the critical parental line trial.

Meticulous testing and screening of the silkworms throughout the entire rearing cycle proved that the BAM-1 lines are the strongest, most robust recombinant spider silk strains the Company has ever produced. With zero observation of disease within any of the four production batches, the Company and its consultants are now prepared to accelerate the drive to reach metric-ton-level production.

“The BAM-1 hybrids have exceeded our expectations thanks in part to our team, our outside consultants, and Dr. Nirmal Kumar’s guidance,” said Company founder and CEO, Kim Thompson. “Initial results have shown faster growth rates, nearly perfect cocooning rates, and larger cocoon size than we have seen even in our own R&D center. We are in an entirely new ball game now. 

The current production trial will continue to run for two or three weeks. Additional data on each of the four production batches is being collected and processed. “We are 85% to 90% through the trial of the parental strains, and every single batch of our new strains sailed through what we expected to be the toughest challenges,” continued Thompson. “Even in advance of the conclusion of the trials, I am happy to report that our two-year program of acclimation to the production environment appears to have been achieved.”
