Paper Abstract

In this work, the fabrication of thin films mixed with cholesterol enzyme as recognition component is shown, using solgel technique. The film was deposited at one end of photonic crystal fiber (optrode), which was used as carrier medium of sol-gel matrix. The concentration of cholesterol in the test sample was determined by the use of transmittance. Measuring device consists of a power source (laser diode), optrode and a light detector. The laser beam is transmitted through the optrode; the variations of intensity depending on cholesterol concentration are emitted to be detected by a photoresistor.
