amplification of 13Kb DNA fragment by PCR

I have amplified a 13Kb DNA fragment from spinach chloroplast by the
XL PCR Kit of PERKIN ELMER recently. But the yield is very low--about
2ug/100ul/reaction and it seems hard to purify and concentrate the PCR
product. I had tried to wash and concentrate them by Centricon-10 to 20ul
and load into low-melting gel to try to get the fragment. The pattern
what I see on the gel is that there is still a lot of primer exist and
the band what I want disappeared!?! But I can see it on the 0.8% agarose
gel while I diluted the PCR product mixture 5X with TE buffer!! It's
really a strange thing.
Now I have DNA but can not purify and concentrate them!
Welcom any comment or suggestion.
