I'm not sure I know what you mean by re-amplification.  If you mean taking some
PCR product and putting it back into another PCR reaction to get more product,
then I have done it.  It's really easy- just isolate your product by a column
or from a gel, then put a tiny, tiny, tiny bit (maybe 1:10^8 dilution) as
template into a new reaction.  Be very, very careful not to contaminate your
PCR pipetts and reagents with PCR product or else you may never make any other
PCR products in your lab again.
