AMSilk is the first company to manufacture spider silk, a high performance protein that can be used for medical devices, wound healing, pharmaceutical products and fibers. The company's unique biotechnological process, invented at the Technische Universität München, has been scaled to industrial size for ton-scale production. AMSilk's spider silk retains the performance properties of natural spider silk, is biocompatible and can be processed into films, coatings, foams, nonwovens and fibers. AMSilk is developing several wound treatments and technical fibers (Biosteel® ) for medical and ballistic textiles.
