MICHIGAN – Spider silk-based fibre innovator Kraig Biocraft Laboratories says it has passed a crucial milestone in the production of new recombinant silks after successful trials of the knock-out/knock-in multiplex system it launched in April of last year.

Earlier this year, the company filed two new patents in anticipation of the technology’s potential, which reportedly reduces manufacturing complexities when creating new transgenics.

This new system should allow the company to achieve homozygous – a genetic condition where an individual inherits the same alleles for a particular gene from both parents – and germline stable new transgenics in a fraction of the time, ensuring more effective silk variations.
