Kraig Biocraft Laboratories Completes Production of Silkworm Eggs for Spider Silk Production

ANN ARBOR, Mich., Oct. 15, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (OTCQB: KBLB) (“Company” or “Kraig Labs”), announces that it has completed production and genetic screening of its latest batch of spider silk silkworm eggs. These specialized silkworm eggs are now ready for shipment to Vietnam to restart commercial production.

Production operations at the Company’s factory were suspended in March due to a mandatory shutdown, resulting from the global spread of COVID-19. During the COVID-19 quarantine, Kraig Labs’ U.S.-based team focused its efforts on improving the performance and genetics of its Dragon Silk strain of recombinant spider silk silkworms. Kraig Labs’ U.S. operations also used this time to scale up its supply of silkworm eggs to allow for a restart of its operations in Vietnam.

“Our teams have done a fantastic job, making significant progress in our genetics, production readiness, and R&D,” said CEO and Founder, Kim Thompson. “We believe that these silkworm eggs that are now ready for shipment to our factory, represent the future of spider silk production.”
