Software we trust.

As epidemiologists, researchers and data analysts, we rely on a range of software to allow for gathering, collating, analysing and interpreting data. Since 2017, we offer some of our in-house developed tools, which we have relied on for years in our own workflow, as a cloud-based service. We offer these tools because we trust them – they have been developed in tandem with our own epidemiologists, field workers and analysts, field tested in a range of circumstances and continuously improved with input from our experts, partner institutions and clients. We are proud of our ever-expanding toolkit, and of the ever-growing list of satisfied clients, from government agencies to pharmaceutical manufacturers, who have been making good use of our tools.

  • Image
    Field tested
    Designed for epidemiology teams in the field, CBRD Wildfire™ can operate from a range of platforms, including mobile devices. Outside of network coverage, Wildfire™ stores data in encrypted local storage and synchronizes it with the cloud server once network connection is restored.
  • Image
    Direct-to-analysis

    As data is collected, pre-defined analyses are continuously performed and updated on the data set. Real-time detection logic allows for early detection of emerging infection clusters.

  • Image
    GIS enabled

    Geoenabled data collection associates data with the location of collection, effortlessly integrating with GIS solutions and adding a spatial dimension without additional workload for the field team.

CBRD Wildfire™

Wildfire™ is a multi-platform distributed contact tracing application designed for fieldwork in all circumstances. Backed by a robust graph database, Wildfire™ can operate in a 'detached' mode when no network connection is available, and sync with the cloud once new data is added. While designed for field applications, Wildfire™ can integrate with semi-active surveillance solutions like Denali™ to provide continuous non-contact follow-up.


CBRD Wildfire™ contains cryptographic protocols that subject it to certain export controls. For details, please consult our page on export controls of software containing cryptographic protocols. A commercial version, CBRD Wildfire™ XE, is available to customers who cannot satisfy the requirements of the relevant export control legislation. CBRD Wildfire™ XE may not be functionally equivalent to CBRD Wildfire™ and in particular lack certain features critical for securing patient information.
