Kraig Biocraft Laboratories files for International Patents in Key Spider Silk Knock-in Knock-out Technology

Patent covers Biotech Company’s latest Spider Silk mass production Tools

ANN ARBOR, Mich., – February 16, 2021– Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (OTCQB: KBLB) (“the Company” or “Kraig Labs”), the biotechnology company focused on the development and commercialization of spider silk, announces that the Company has filed a patent application protecting its most advanced knock-in knock-out gene editing technologies for the creation of nearly pure spider silk.

Entitled “Modification of Heavy Chain Fibrion in Bombyx Mori“, this patent covering the core technologies the Company has developed for the mass production of nearly pure spider silk fibers.  Specifically, the Company has leveraged the application of knock-in knock-out technology to create the most genetically advanced and purest spider silk fibers in the Company’s history. The Company has also filed a corresponding patent application under the global Patent Cooperation Treaty process to protect these technologies internationally.

These technologies and inventions were first disclosed in a provisional patent filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) under applications #62/995,717 on February 11, 2020.  This full patent application, now filed, takes advantage of that earlier priority date in the USPTO’s first to file patent system.  The Company made the discovery of this breakthrough public during a press conference held on April 16, 2020 where it reported the creation of this new technology with a spider silk purity nearly ten times greater than Dragon Silk, the Company’s previously developed recombinant spider silk fibers. 

“Since first reporting the development of this new Knock-in, Knock-out gene-editing system, we have moved forward rapidly to bring this nearly pure spider silk to market.  The filing of this full patent application is well-timed as we expect to begin transitioning this new, purer spider silk technology to our production facility in the near future,” said Kim Thompson, CEO and founder of Kraig Labs. “These technologies are core to the commercialization of spider silk, and we will continue to push forward aggressively to protect and grow intellectual property while we remain squarely focused on the commercialization and generating sales.”

ANN ARBOR, Mich., – January 26, 2021– Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (OTCQB: KBLB) (“Company” or “Kraig Labs”), the biotechnology company focused on the development and commercialization of spider silk, announces that it is forming a joint venture partnership with MtheMovement, an eco-friendly luxury streetwear apparel line, part of the Kings Group of Companies and its affiliated companies (“Kings Group”).

The joint venture will develop and sell Kraig Labs’ spider silk fibers under the new innovative apparel and fashion brand, trade named SpydaSilk™ and potential other trademarks to be announced. All intellectual property related to SpydaSilk™ will be jointly owned by Kraig Labs and Kings Group. The deal combines Kraig Labs’ industry leading fibers with Kings Group’s business skills and regional enterprise expertise, creating what we believe will be a strong vertical integration for both companies.

Under the terms of this agreement, Kraig Labs granted the joint venture and the SpydaSilk brand an exclusive geographic license to all Kraig Lab technologies for the ASEAN region, in exchange for a 4 year firm commitment to purchase up to $32 million, with an additional projected purchase of $8 million, of Kraig Labs’ raw recombinant spider silk, with an initial payment of $250,000.

“SpydaSilk’s mission is to create high-impact products and technologies, so partnering with Kings Group, which we believe has strong product development expertise and intense understanding of ASEAN market, is a powerful combination that we believe will drive SpydaSilk’s sales and innovation,” said Kim Thompson, Kraig Labs’ founder and CEO. “Kraig Labs has always been proud to maintain our vanguard position in the spider silk space; this agreement strengthens our leadership role with a partner who shares our vision and places Kraig Labs and Kings Group on the best path for success. Spider silk is among the strongest fibers produced in nature, and the agreement represents the world’s first large-scale commitment to purchase spider silk fibers”

The new SpydaSilk alliance combines the strengths of both companies and calls on Kraig Labs to provide fibers and materials expertise, while Kings Group will lead the marketing, sales, and distribution. The two companies will work together to increase Kraig Labs’ product development agility and production scalability.

Under this collaboration, Kraig Labs and Kings Group believe that the material will not only be applied to apparel; the joint venture is also exploring uses to enhance other industries such as building construction and medical industries.

“Kings Group is dedicated to helping unleash the benefits of spider silk and this bold enterprise, the unveiling of the SpydaSilkTM joint venture, significantly accelerates that goal. We believe that we will help improve the world through innovation to drive profitable growth, reduce emissions, enhance customer loyalty, and create long-term shareholder value,” said Mr. Walter Wee, Chief Investment Officer of Kings Group. “In researching various spider silk technologies, we came to the conclusion that Kraig Labs is the leader. Our agreement with Kraig Labs represents the first large-scale commitment to spider silk commercialization and we could not be happier to begin this part of our SpydaSilk™ journey.”

Kraig Biocraft Laboratories tackles biggest challenge facing global silk production

ANN ARBOR, Mich., – June 29, 2020 –Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (OTCQB: KBLB) (“Company”), a leading developer of spider silk based fibers, announces that it has completed the development phase of a new program targeting the largest challenge facing global silk production, viral pathogens. As reported in the Journal of Biological Control, volume 31, viral diseases can result in total annual silk production losses of as much as 32%. 

Kraig Labs has developed its first immune-enhancing genetic insert, designed to create disease-resistant silkworms. The Company is now ready for its first round of transgenic creation and resistance testing. This effort was done in a parallel, and complementary, effort to the Company’s groundbreaking program developing high-performance spider silk inspired silk fibers and yarns.

Global silk production is expected to reach USD 17 billion in 2021; the economic impact of eliminating the loss from disease is a multi-billion dollar opportunity. The Company anticipates that its development of a disease resistant silkworm could be licensed across the entire global silk industry.

 “Our work to enhance the disease resistance of our silkworms complements and strengths our focus in bringing our recombinant spider silk to market,” said CEO and Founder, Kim Thompson. “We believe that success in this effort will also provide significant opportunities for growth far beyond the reach of Kraig’s in-house production capacity, with licensing applications globally.”

Once proven, the Company expects to merge these disease resistance properties within its existing lines of genetically enhanced recombinant spider silks.

Kraig Biocraft Laboratories Prepares for 2020 Production

ANN ARBOR, Mich., – May 12, 2020 –Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (OTCQB: KBLB) (“the Company”) announces that the Company is preparing to transfer production back to Prodigy Textiles, its Vietnamese subsidiary.  During the COVID-19 lockdown, when the Company opted to furlough its non-essential staff, the Company shifted its spider silk production operations focus to its US research facility.  The Company is now ready to transition the majority of its production back to Vietnam as soon as the silkworm rearing cycle allows.

During this pandemic, the Company has continued to advance and strengthen its production operations.  Through vigorous testing of its Dragon SilkTM and Monster Silk® lines, the Company identified its best performing and hardy silkworms ideally suited for large scale production. This milestone is the result of a dedicated effort by its U.S. staff, going far beyond standard material performance testing.  This first production cycle of 2020, at the Company’s Vietnam factory, will utilize these top-performing transgenics, forming a solid foundation for the continued 2020 production scale-up.

The Company anticipates rapid scale-up of its recombinant spider silk and will use this year’s first production run to ship materials that are dedicated to fulfilling an outstanding order, by one of the Company development partners. The following production runs will be to address fiber requests made by additional potential development partners and to grow the breeding population.

“As we finish preparations for the 2020 production season, the future of Kraig Labs, has never looked brighter,” said COO Jon Rice.
