I've had good luck doing a second PCR on a fragment after running it through an 
agarose gel--the procedure (first posted in this newsgroup by Ed Rybicki back in 1992) 
involves taking a small "core" or plug of agarose containing the band and reamplifying 
that directly.  The procedure is spelled out at 

Good luck!
