PIPES (Piperazine-N,N′-bis(2-ethanesulfonic acid), is frequently used as a buffering agent in biochemistry. PIPES has pKa near the physiological pH which makes it useful in cell culture work. PIPES has been documented minimizing lipid loss when buffering glutaraldehyde histology in plant and animal tissues and has a negligible capacity to bind divalent ions. Fixation of fungal zoospores for fluorescence microscopy and electron microscopy was optimal with a combination of glutaraldehyde and formaldehyde in PIPES buffer is done.

Soluble in 1M NaOH (0.5 M at 20°C), water (~1 g/L at 100°C), and 0.5 N NaOH (0.1 M).

Store in cool place. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Keep away from strong oxidizing agents.
