MIAMI — Talent Testing Service Inc. today announced a partnership program with UCLA for a sexual health study.
Conducted by UCLA researchers, the study is designed to examine the presence of gonorrhea and chlamydia in urine, rectal and throat test samples. Any current or new TTS clients may opt in to receive the free additional testing and will be compensated with a $40 gift card for participation and $10 for each additional person that participates via their referral.
All testing is completely confidential.
Interested clients will be processed at TTS' Northridge, Calif., office by signing a consent form and completing a questionnaire, as well as contributing samples.
Participants who test positive for gonorrhea or chlamydia will be provided with treatment supervised by a physician at no cost.
"This partnership supports TTS’s ongoing commitment to the most advanced infectious molecular testing for the adult industry," TTS said in a statement. "Since 2006, TTS has offered testing for HIV RNA via the FDA-approved PCR test that detects the presence of the HIV virus earlier than all other tests.
TTS offers testing options including a Basic Panel (HIV, chlamydia, and gonorrhea) for $110, and a Full Panel (HIV, chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis and hepatitis B, hepatitis C) for $150.
