CANOGA PARK, Calif. — Free Speech Coalition (FSC), the adult industry trade association, on Wednesday announced four testing facilities that will participate in the Adult Production Health and Safety Services program (APHSS.org).

This program has been developed with the help of legal and medical experts, as well as industry members. It will be administrated by Free Speech Coalition as a resource to fill the gap left by the closure of the AIM clinic.

APHSS.org has four recommended testing facilities, locally and nationwide. Performers that test at these facilities will have their work availability results entered into the APHSS.org database. Producers and agents can then verify a performer’s availability status through the database.

Primex Lab is located 16742 Stagg St., #120, Van Nuys, Calif.,, and has draw stations throughout California and Nevada. Performers that have a prescription can go to any Primex facility and request a performer’s panel test.

LabTest LA is located at 12410 Burbank Blvd., Ste. 100B, North Hollywood, Calif., and also has draw station locations in Florida. Performers can obtain a prescription at any of their locations and request a performer’s panel test.

Advanced Medical Testing Center (AMTC) has locations nationwide for performers located throughout the U.S.

The Healing Wave Center is located at 16742 Stagg St., #109, Van Nuys, Calif., 91406. This medical clinic can provide testing services to performers, as well as other limited medical services with comfort, privacy and dignity.

All of the testing facilities also are open to the public, and have a wide range of testing services. For more information on any of the listed facilities, go to APHSS.org and click on the “testing facilities” tab on the top menu bar. From there, users can follow links to the facilities’ websites.

“FSC has been working diligently since the closure of AIM, to provide the industry with the APHSS.org program, in order to continue health and safety protocols for adult production,” Membership Director Joanne Cachapero said. “Our top priority has been to protect the well-being and privacy of performers, as well as securing the best possible testing services for the industry.

“We’re starting from scratch with this program,” she added, “but with the support of the adult community, we’re sure that APHSS.org will be an important resource for adult productions. We also look forward to developing additional APHSS.org services, such as health & safety education for industry members.”

Currently, the APHSS.org database is undergoing beta testing, and a formal launch announcement will come later this week.
