Testing of Dragon Silk Fibres

Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc is a leading developer of genetically engineered spider silk based fibre technologies. Their latest innovation is the first ever dragon silk fibres. The fibres have been sent to a medical equipment firm for performance and application suitability testing.

Kraig is a biotechnology company focused on the commercialisation of new textiles and high performance fibres. The Company is dedicating its current dragon silk production to fulfilling its recently exercised US Army contract, but in recognition of the abundant sample requests that the company received and due to this healthcare firm’s extensive expertise in medical technology development and innovation, the company decided to supply a small amount of fibres, to be tested for strength, elasticity, and other properties.

Based upon the initial evaluation of the fibres they are already working to modify the properties of the finished threads.
