You might try an old technique termed euglobulin precipitation.
Basically you dialyse serum against ice cold water and get a precipitate.
Spin the ppte out at 34,000 x g. From there you can run the re-dissolved
crude prep on an S300 column. I have tried this on monoclonal antibody
culture supernatants containing IgM and it works as well. This may be what
your after depending on your needs.
