What is the best way to purify PCR products?

For most applications, it is best to purify PCR products by gel electrophoresis. This simple method not only purifies the final PCR product, but can be a valuable troubleshooting tool as well since nonspecific PCR products, primer-dimer products, negative amplification, and other elements can easily be identified by gel analysis.
