MIAMI —  Talent Testing Services Inc. issued a statement today again saying it "categorically denies inappropriate behavior" on the part of its Northridge, Calif., staff to accommodate Mr. Marcus’s request to alter the basic talent panel test results.

Just yesterday, TTS President Sixto Pacheco told XBIZ that its system protocol does not permit the altering of test results.

Today, TTS elaborated on its procedures for testing.

"Our proprietary software has different levels of security embedded into its code to protect the integrity of the test result report," TTS said in a statement. "If a talent chooses a basic talent panel, or a full talent panel, all test in the panel selected have to be performed before the system provides a 'cleared' or 'not cleared' status.

"If the talent is reactive/positive to any of the markers in the panel, the system will automatically disable the results and provide a “not cleared” status. This means that the results cannot be either emailed, printed or shown on the screen."

TTS also said that it has employed QR codes and authentication codes in its printed results since December to avoid talent fabricating a report.

Mr. Marcus alleged this week that a TTS clinician at its Northridge, Calif., office omitted in a printout part of his test that shows “reactive or non-reactive” for syphilis.

A TTS staff member at its Northridge office declined comment on Mr. Marcus' allegations to XBIZ today.
