Polyaniline nanotube (PANI-NT) based films have been fabricated onto indium-tin-oxide (ITO) coated glass plates via electrophoretic technique. These PANI-NT/ITO electrodes have been utilized for covalent immobilization of cholesterol oxidase (ChOx) using glutaraldehyde (Glu) as cross-linker. Structural, morphological and electrochemical characterization of PANI-NT/ITO electrode and ChOx/Glu/PANI-NT/ITO bioelectrode have been done using FT-IR spectroscopy, SEM, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy and cyclic voltammetry techniques. Response studies of the ChOx/Glu/PANI-NT/ITO bioelectrode have been carried out using both linear sweep voltammetry and UV-Visible spectrophotometry. The results of the biosensing studies reveal that this bioelectrode can be used to detect cholesterol in wide detection range of 25–500 mg/dL with high sensitivity of 3.36 mA mg−1  dL and fast response time of 30 s at pH 7.4. This bioelectrode exhibits very low value of Michaelis–Menten constant of 1.18 mM indicating enhanced interactions between cholesterol and ChOx immobilized onto this nanostructured PANI matrix.
