These transgenics are made out of complex proteins, and can deliver fibres with unprecedented physical properties. It has the potential to compete with the company's existing Dragon Silktm line.
Commenting on the new transgenics, Jon Rice, COO of Kraig Laboratories said, “These are the most complex genetic constructions that we have ever created in the company's history. In some cases, these designs took more than 12 months to perfect, and we are just now able to confirm that this work has resulted in successful transgenics.”
“This work represents a significant breakthrough in our efforts to bring transformative technical fibres to market, and is a clear demonstration of our capability for continuous innovation,” he added.
Over the next several months, the company will start testing each of these newly created transgenics to measure their performance and use for targeted application. (MCJ)
