Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (KBLB) is the world leader in the development of recombinant technologies and recombinant fibers for the global textile and technical textile markets. The major focus of our work is the development and production of genetically engineered spider silk.

Kraig Biocraft Laboratories will hold a Shareholders' Meeting on April 16. Use this link to read the notice of meeting and the accompanying letter from our CEO.

On January 22, 2013 we announced our plans for a pilot production program for Monster Silk ™.

On January 14, 2013 we announced the creation of "Big Red," a new recombinant spider silk designed for increased strength.

On January 5, 2012 we announced that the National Academy of Sciences published the peer-reviewed scientific article describing our spider silk breakthrough in the prestigious journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Congratulations to our scientific team!

On November 14, 2011 we announced yet another breakthrough: The success of our micro-injections of Sigma-Aldrich's zinc finger technology, and the creation of seven new strains of ZF transgenics.

On November 3, 2011 we announced a second landmark with the signing of a commercial Spider SIlk licensing agreement with the University of Notre Dame whereby the University became a Kraig shareholder.

On April 12, 2011 we announced a landmark deal with biotechnology giant Sigma-Aldrich that we believe will pave the way for the future of our Company.

We are an innovative and aggressive biotechnology company focused on the development and commercialization of commercially significant high performance polymers and technical fiber. Based on proprietary genetic engineering technology, Kraig has successfully developed and produced next generation polymers and protein-based fibers including recombinant spider silk.  Our work has recently succeeded in creating and developing new fibers that have never been seen before with extraordinary properties of strength, flexibility and beauty. Our research arm remains focused on the continued development of new recombinant spider silks and other high strength polymers that we believe have the potential for significant industrial and consumer applications.

Applications of High Performance Fibers

High performance technical fibers are currently used in a wide variety of military, industrial, and consumer applications requiring superior strength, toughness and flexibility.
