In order to strengthen its intellectual property protection, developer of advanced spider silk based fibres Kraig Biocraft Laboratories with the University of Notre Dame, has filed two additional patents.

“The filing of the two additional patents will help the company strengthen its intellectual property protection surrounding its transgenic silkworms and spider silk technologies,” Kraig said in a press release.

“These patent applications are designed to protect the creation of the Kraig Labs transgenic silkworms and the resultant chimeric spider silk,” it added.

The Company currently has open patent actions in 10 countries, including key silk producer and consumer nations.
“From our inception, Kraig Labs has remained dedicated to a spirit of innovation and refused to accept cannot as an answer,” said founder and CEO, Kim Thompson.

“This pursuit of the seemingly impossible led to a series of first of its kind inventions, including our recently announced Dragon Silk genetic line,” Thompson too added.

“The filling of these patents seeks to protect the creativity and value of that work for Kraig Labs and our shareholders, and goes hand in hand with our commercial market development plans,” she observed.

Kraig Biocraft is a fully reporting biotechnology company and a developer of genetically engineered spider silk based fibre technologies.

The Company has achieved a series of scientific breakthroughs in the area of spider silk technology with implications for the global textile industry. (AR)
