Dear Paul,
In our sequence facility we routinely use Hamilton syringes. Our clean up procedure is the 
following : After loading (usualy 6 gels) we rinse 8 time the syringe (mean fill enterely the 
body with distilled water, and unfill it on a paper) and leave it filled. If a clogging appear, 
let the syringe on a sonicating bath several times (ie sufficient to unclogged it)
