TTS Comments on CET Decision to Initiate Testing

LOS ANGELES—Talent Testing Service president and CEO Sixto Pacheco has issued the following statement regarding the decision by Cutting Edge Testing to initiate HBsAg and anti-HCV testing for adult performers.

“We are very happy to welcome CET in their decision to offer free HBsAg and anti-HCV as part of their basic panel,” he said. “As a further insight to this program, we encourage CET and all other APHSS participating facilities to only use FDA cleared Whole Blood Donor grade reagents for this type of screening. This is very important in assuring that all talent tests provide the same baseline in clearing talent and resetting the health statistics.”

As part of TTS Awareness Month, the company is offering talent the following Basic Panel Test at over 300 locations with a 24-hour turn-around.
