This is interesting. A comparative sucrose and trehalose test can be used to identify candida glabrata because it can assimilate trehalose but not sucrose.

"We developed a simple method for the identification of Candida glabrata on the basis of the ability of this species to rapidly assimilate trehalose but not sucrose. After incubation of yeasts with Rosco diagnostic tablets containing sucrose or trehalose, identification of C. glabrata was achieved in 4 h with 100% sensitivity and specificity."
