A chitosan (CS)-tin oxide (SnO2) nanobiocomposite film has been deposited onto an indium-tin-oxide glass plate to immobilize cholesterol oxidase (ChOx) for cholesterol detection. The value of the Michaelis–Menten constant (Km) obtained as 3.8 mM for ChOx/CS-SnO2/ITO is lower (8 mM) than that of a ChOx/CS/ITO bioelectrode revealing enhancement in affinity and/or activity of ChOx towards cholesterol and also revealing strong binding of ChOx onto CS-SnO2/ITO electrode. This ChOx/CS-SnO2/ITO cholesterol sensor retains 95% of enzyme activity after 4–6 weeks at 4 °C with response time of 5 s, sensitivity of 34.7 μA/mg dL−1 cm2 and detection limit of 5 mg/dL.
