Abstract
Currently in the phase of the assembly, the Integral Field Spectrograph (IFS) is part of Sphere, which will see the first light at ESO Paranal as a VLT second generation instruments in the 2011. In this paper we will describe the main aspects in the Assembly, Integration and Testing phase (AIT) of the instrument at INAF-Osservatorio Astronomico di Padova (OAPD) laboratory at the current stage. As result of the AIT, a full set of tests and qualifications of IFS subcomponents will be discussed. These tests have been designed and realized with the purpose to obtain an accurate comparison between design goals and effective performances of the instrument.
