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 Biocraft Laboratories Successfully Completes Recombinant Cocoon Production From Spring Trials

ANN ARBOR, Mich., – April 22, 2024 –Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (OTCQB: KBLB) (“the Company” or “Kraig Labs”), announces today what it considers to be a major milestone. The Company has completed rearing of the first generation of its new BAM-1 parental strains as part of its spring production trial. 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.”

Kraig Biocraft Laboratories Shares Industry Update on Recombinant Spider Silk from Waste Plastics

ANN ARBOR, Mich., – March 28, 2024 –Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (OTCQB: KBLB) (“Kraig Labs” or “the Company”), comments on an exciting advancement in spider silk engineering from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (“RPI”).

Researchers at RPI published a paper in Microbial Cell Factories outlining a new and novel method of creating spider silk protein from waste plastics.

This project used a new strain of Pseudomonas bacteria capable of converting depolymerized polyethylene into targeted recombinant proteins. While this work is in the early stages, it shows the potential for this process to create spider silk-like proteins from partially decomposed plastics.

Plastic wastes continue to accumulate globally, resulting in disposal and recycling challenges as well as increased levels of microplastics showing up in our food and water supplies. Creating useful and easily biodegradable silk proteins from these materials could help alleviate this growing concern.

“I am encouraged to see the continued focus and breadth of research developing in the field of spider silk technologies,” said CEO and Founder, Kim Thompson. “While this approach using bacteria doesn’t directly create silk fibers, the potential impact of creating technologies to address the growing plastic waste and convert that into useful and biodegradable materials is very exciting. We congratulate the team at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute for their work. While our production methods have no direct connection to the work at RPI, the commonality is environmentally friendly spider silk through molecular biology.”

Kraig Labs’ recombinant spider silk production model utilizes traditional silk production systems involving planting mulberry trees to harvest and feed the leaves to silkworms. The Company’s specialized silkworms have been scientifically enhanced through molecular biology to create recombinant spider silk cocoons that are reeled to produce spider silk yarns and fabrics. Kraig Labs is currently working to expand its spider silk production footprint. The Company’s CEO and its leading sericulture expert are currently in Southeast Asia working to prepare for the launch of the Company’s spring 2024 production trials and the 2024 silk production season.

These forward-looking statements generally can be identified by phrases such as “believes,” “plans,” “expects,” “anticipates,” “foresees,” “estimated,” “hopes,” “if,” “develops,” “researching,” “research,” “pilot,” “potential,” “could” or other words or phrases of similar import. Forward looking statements include descriptions of the Company’s business strategy, outlook, objectives, plans, intentions and goals. All such forward-looking statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in forward-looking statements. This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any security.
