PIPES can be used in a wide array of biological applications, including as a component in media formulations. Specific applications include buffers for cell culture and diagnostic reagent production. It is used to buffer glutaraldehyde fixative solutions when fixing plant and/or animal tissue tissue samples. This will help prevent the loss of lipids. It is used to buffer glutaraldehyde and formaldehyde when fixing fungal zoospores for fluorescence microscopy and electron microscopy.
