Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is a broadly utilized assisted reproductive technology. A number of technologies for this procedure have evolved lately, such as the most commonly utilized piezo-assisted ICSI technique (P-ICSI). An important problem with this technique, however, is that it requires a small amount of mercury to stabilize the tip of the penetration micropipette. A completely different and mercury-free injection technology, called the rotationally oscillating drill (Ros-Drill
