Are there any special PCR parameter requirements when using a biotinylated primer?

Fortunately, biotin will not affect the properties of your primer. You should be able to use a biotinylated primer under the same reaction conditions that you would use for an unmodified oligo. If you do have any troubles, a Mg or temperature gradient should lead to amplification.
