Isopropyl-β-D-Thiogalactopyranoside (IPTG) is used as an inducer of the lac Z operon, and is not intended for use in the diagnosis of disease or other conditions in humans.

Incorporation of IPTG into media containing X-β-Galactoside (NCM0255), or equivalent chromogenic compound, enhances the color development of organisms capable of fermenting lactose. This combination of compounds is especially useful in transformation experiments involving Escherichia coli where disruption of the lac Z operon is used as a marker for DNA insertion.
