SecreFlo (secretin) is a solution that is injected intravenously to test for a variety of digestive problems. SecreFlo stimulates secretions in the pancreas, which help doctors diagnose pancreatic exocrine dysfunction.

SecreFlo can also stimulate gastrin secretion, which helps doctors diagnose a gastrinoma, a tumor found in the pancreas or duodenum.

SecreFlo can help identify an ampulla of Vater -- an enlarged duct from the liver and pancreas to the small intestine -- and accessory papilla during an endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ECRP) procedure.
