Caption: IVF procedure. Light microscope footage of a micro-needle being used to inject a human sperm cell directly into an egg cell (ovum). This procedure is known as intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), a form of in vitro fertilisation (IVF). It is typically performed when the male partner is infertile, either due to a low sperm count or malformed sperm cells. After manual fertilisation, the egg is cultured and implanted into the woman's uterus for development.
