Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (KBLB.OB) is on the Cusp of Unlocking Exciting Technology

We have been covering Kraig Biocraft Laboratories since December of last year. Those who have read our articles understand why we are excited about this company’s prospects to develop a “super fiber” that can be sold into the technical textiles industry. This super fiber, spider silk, has truly remarkable properties and may have numerous commercial and consumer applications.

Currently Kraig Biocraft is in the research and development stage, but has been making excellent progress in the labs and is now capable of accomplishing five thousand genetic transfers in a single week using its newly designed DNA insertion packets. Additional lab personnel and a change in techniques has significantly boosted productivity and the company’s odds of success.

Artificial or transgenic production of spider silk will surely be viewed by the scientific community as a major breakthrough. Such a development would also likely yield significant coverage in the general business and popular press sectors, perhaps offering Kraig Biocraft Laboratories significant public relations exposure, which could easily drive its market value to much higher levels.

We are very pleased that Kraig Biocraft aligned itself with Dr. Malcolm Fraser, who was the inventor of the piggyBac technique for gene transposition, and Dr. Randy Lewis, who is one of the world’s cheif authorities on spider silk. As a meaningful shareholder in the company, Dr. Fraser stands to gain substantial monetary rewards, in addition to significant academic and scientific accolades.

If/once Kraig Biocraft achieves a major breakthrough in the laboratory, it could take awhile to completely refine the process. It is anticipated that the company’s management team would actively pursue licensing agreements or the outright sale of the company during this time. Should the company achieve its desired transgenic goals, we believe it would be unlikely that the company would actually produce the fibers on its own as this would require very specialized management skills and extensive amounts of fresh capital. An acquisition would be much more likely.

Intellectual Capital

Postby protostars » Wed Feb 25, 2009 12:00 pm

This company's value is in its intellectual capital. As they start getting and processing results from their work, their value will continue to rise. At some point they will presumably cash out, and investors will take their profits and move on. It will then be big money's turn to develop this super silk into the ubiquitous product it can become.

It would be great to see a test product of this silk, However very understandable that they are in the testing stage still.

Split

Postby protostars » Thu Feb 26, 2009 8:34 am

Unclear why the board has yet to announce any decision, pro or con, regarding the proposed split. Maybe they did and I just haven't seen it yet.

Split

Postby protostars » Fri Feb 27, 2009 2:24 pm

I think they announced the split prematurely, and got caught when they realized it needed more thought. So now they aren't saying anything.

Kraig Biocraft Laboratories Inc. (KBLB.OB) has No Need for FDA Approval

One of the most significant hurdles most biotechnology companies have to overcome is FDA approval. To receive FDA approval, a process that can take up to two and a half years, the company must submit an application (usually about 100,000 pages) to the FDA. This extensive process has been a barrier to many new products that will never compete in the market.

Fortunately for Kraig Biocraft, their technology doesn’t have to be approved by the FDA, which makes it much easier for investors to monetize their investment since the costs are significantly reduced and the time to market is much shorter. The potential for success is also much greater as only 5 out of 5,000 compounds discovered in the pre-clinical stage ever make it through the entire FDA approval process.

Approval

Postby protostars » Tue Mar 03, 2009 1:31 pm

Another thing, if they don't require approval, it makes them an easier takeover. There are other companies that could make good use of this technology, like Dupont, and it's beneficial not to have the FDA in your way.

Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (KBLB.OB) is Poised for Success

When some people measure the value of a company, the primary aspect they concern themselves with, is dollars and cents – i.e. the bottom line. This method of evaluation would be fine if life was strictly a numbers-game, but it is not. This narrow view eludes the true spirit of industry, which is the betterment of all mankind.

Few companies can claim to have changed the world through innovation, but if Kraig Labs continues its current rate of progression, it is a claim that will not be unfounded for them. Scientists have tried for decades to exploit the unequaled uniqueness of spider silk, but to no avail. Only Kraig Labs has utilized DNA transfers to effect the production of spider silk by silkworms through a sort of ‘genetic surrogacy’, which allows the circumvention of the fact that spiders cannot be raised in colonies due to a natural tendency toward cannibalism. This innovative approach has likely put this company closer to commercial production of the substance than anyone ever before.

When it comes to high-potential, ground-floor opportunities, Kraig Biocraft Laboratories is unsurpassed by the majority. They are teetering on the brink of a breakthrough that will forever alter the landscape in the field of engineering.

Spider On Your Back

Is that shirt on your back made partially out of spider silk? Well, not yet. But that question may have a different answer in the not too distant future. Researchers around the world are working hard to untangle one of nature’s greatest mysteries: exactly how do spiders make silk and can it be produced on a commercial scale by man.

The reason for all the interest in spider silk relates to its extraordinary qualities, unlike anything currently available. Although there are different types of spider silk, and different ways of measuring strength, it is generally considered to have a tensile strength (ability to resist tearing) far greater than steel by weight, in addition to being much more elastic than other tough fibers, such as Dupont’s Kevlar®, DSM Dyneema's Dyneema, or Cytec Industries, Inc. (NYSE: CYT) and Hexcel Corp.’s (NYSE: HXL) carbon fibers. It is also hypoallergenic and biodegradable. But perhaps the most remarkable property of spider silk is its weight, or lack of it. All of its unique features are wrapped up in a molecular structure so light that a strand of spider silk long enough to circle the earth could weigh less than one pound.

Strength and elasticity, without significant weight, is a combination of properties offering countless industrial and commercial applications. But it does nobody any good if it can’t be produced in the volumes necessary, and therein rests the biggest problem. There is currently no proven large scale way to produce spider silk. It turns out that you can’t just corral a bunch of spiders to spin their magic. Spiders are, by nature, predatory, and will attack one another. So the search is on for a way to transplant the already identified genetic machinery of the spider into more production friendly animals.

Researchers in various universities have uncovered the structure of different spider silks, and have developed some laboratory level procedures for producing it, but few individual companies have taken on the challenge.

• EI DuPont de Nemours & Co. (NYSE: DD) took an early look at spider silk, creating fibers that had two of the main proteins, but their recent progress is unclear, and they still depend upon their Kevlar® aramid fiber for the marketplace.
• Researchers at the University of Wyoming, University of the Pacific, the University of California, and at Shinshu University in Japan uncovered the molecular structure of the gene for the protein that various female spider species use to make their silken egg cases, but not how to produce the silk in large amounts.
• Nexia Biotechnologies in Canada has managed to produce the spider silk protein in the milk of transgenic goats, but ongoing technical issues related to commercial scale production has led them to refocus on small scale fiber applications.

But now another company, Michigan-based Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (OTCBB: KBLB), has taken a unique approach. The development stage biotechnology company has successfully inserted spider silk DNA packets into silkworms, allowing the silkworms to produce spider silk related proteins. And recently the company announced that it has performed 5,000 such insertions in a single week, greatly increasing the odds of developing a viable spider silk polymer using silkworms, an animal already domesticated for production. An added benefit for the company is the fact that its particular area of genetic research does not require FDA approval, knocking months or years off the development process.

It now seems at least within the realm of possibility that spider silk will someday be available for lightweight bullet-proof vests, industrial filaments, and a hundred other applications, including perhaps the shirt on your back.

DuPont

Postby protostars » Wed Mar 04, 2009 10:55 am

DuPont is very closed-mouthed about how far they have gotten in this area, but their past work indicates a definite interest, especially since it impacts their Kevlar market. They could certainly be looking at a takeover offer. Hard to say.

Is it just kevlar that Dupoint is looking for or other things as well?

DuPont

Postby protostars » Thu Mar 05, 2009 10:31 am

Kevlar is a big money baby for DuPont. But we know for a fact that they undertook an investigation on spider silk a few years back. It's just that they don't ever release much information, and so I don't know if they are still aggressively pursuing it. But my suspicion is that they are keeping an eye on Kraig, and could well come in for a takeover if they see Kevlar being threatened.

Buyout

Postby protostars » Fri Mar 06, 2009 11:26 am

Another possibility is some big money coming in that sees this as an opportunity to knock DuPont off the top of the hill in this market.
