ICSI in vitro fertilisation. Computer illustration of a human egg cell (ovum, blue) being fertilised with a sperm cell (spermatozoon, centre) through the process of intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). ICSI is an in vitro fertilisation (IVF) procedure in which a single sperm is injected directly into an egg using a microinjector hermetic syringe ( right). At left, a micromanipulator is being used to support the egg during the injection process.
