Hello there

Just my tuppence worth - i use Qiagen PCR purification spin columns (same
kit as used to extract DNA from agarose gels).

Can also use it for res. enzyme digest clean ups etc.

Seems to work cleaning up pcr products for ABI based chemistry.

Another method used in the past is Chromaspin columns from Clontech - bit
more cumbersome and yeild can suffer.  Also depends on the size of your pcr
