Does anyone know of labs Lakeside that do testing for things other than bacteria? Parasites, or?

There is no water lab at Lakeside (that I know of) but the main Jalisco testing lab for the Guadalajara area is close by and easy to get to.  I take care of a private water system east of Chapala and get our water tested on a regular basis.

The lab is located about 100 mtrs. south of the Hampton Inn as you head south out of Guadlajara on the Chapala-Guadalajara highway.  Large white building with blue gates and a security guard.  It is called "Comision Estatal del Agua".  Their number is (33) 3689-1542 and the Lab Manager's name is Martin Martinez Rios. They test for all types of biologicals (Microbiologia) as well as dissolved solids (Metales Pesados y Gravimetria y Fisicoquimico).  You can take in your own samples or contract them to come and collect samples (for $700 MX). The receptionist speaks enough English to be able to assist visitors if you are not fluent in Spanish.

The cost for the tests is about $160 - 200 per sample/type.  For example, a test of a sample for total coliforms (Coliformes Totales) is $160, a test for fecal coliforms (Coliformes Fecales) is also $160.  

I have a copy of their price list which I can scan and email you if you would like.

Correct.  The last post you were reading is about 2 years old and that lab by the Hampton Inn no longer deals with the public.  I have yet to find an alternative water testing lab that has a full range of services and are certified.

I have heard that the some of the same labs that do human "fluid" (blood, urine, etc.) testing can do water tests for bacteria but I have no personal experience with it nor have researched it.

I found one in Chapala on Madero but it seems a bit sketchy-slow and expensive. I will see how they do. The Jocotepec lab is much cheaper and more professional.

Lab on Colon in Ajijic.  

Analisis Para Determinatcion de potabildad de Aqua     300P per sample. Took about three/four days. Reliable results from six different samples including a control sample of sterile water.

Tests for 8 different things. Two test below for Bacteria I think.
Bacterial mesofilicas aerobicas

If you are chlorinating drinking water, a swimming pool test kit will show 1 part per million of free chlorine.

Ah me...
Simapa is the mgr/owner of public wells
In Jalisco, they must test their water.
The lab near the Hampton Inn does the testing - it is part of Commission Estatl de Agua de Jalisco
It not longer does tests for the public

The CEA also certifies the labs in Jalisco that can test water.
There are 5 in Guadalajara.
ABC Labs is one of them

others are


ANASA, LAICA, ECOTEC and AMCysa

Tests for potability are defines in NOM-127
The comnplete set of tests costs about 12000 MN.

But you'll know if you're drinking mercury, lead, arsenic or other fun flavors.

Viajero-Tiempo,

I cannot locate AMCysa on the web. Do you have a website address for this testing lab?
