Injecting sperms into the ovum

ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection) is an in vitro fertilization (IVF) technique that is performed in a microinjector. Thanks to this device, the embryologist directly introduces the chosen spermatozoon into the egg, with the intention that the nuclei of both fuse and the embryo is created.

This technique is indicated in cases of poor seminal quality. However, although ICSI is a great help for the sperm, it does not guarantee that fertilization will occur.
