Purpose of the Talent Testing
The adult talent blood test panel is a package test designed specifically for adult industry workers to help detect sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and infections (STIs). Those working in the adult film industry and similar fields are encouraged to get tested frequently to protect their sexual health.

What Does the Adult Industry STD Testing Measure?
When taking the adult talent test, the lab technician will screen for the following common STDs from the blood and urine samples collected:
- Chlamydia and Gonorrhea (urine test)
- HIV-1 infection via Qualitative DNA PCR Blood Test
- Syphilis Blood Test via Rapid Plasma Reagin (RPR)
Each test examines the presence of the disease-causing microbe (pathogen) for each STD. For example, during the urine test, medical technicians will detect and isolate the bacteria causing chlamydia which is Chlamydia trachomatis. For gonorrhea, it’s Neisseria gonorrhoeae, while syphilis is caused by Treponema pallidum.
Who Should Take an Adult Talent Test?
Those working in the adult industry should undergo talent testing at least every 30 days. The more frequent, the better, as some STDs can develop earlier than the said time frame and can be transmitted even if you don’t have any symptoms. Learn more about asymptomatic STDs.
Adult Talent Blood Test Preparation
No special preparation is needed before the urine and blood sample collection.
