Afinity purification with MAb - kits, protocols?

you could first clean uf your AB using either Protein A agarose 
(elute w/ glycine buffer, pH 2) or immobilized antigen (e.g. on any 
amino-reactive matrix, pre-packed NHS-activated sepharose (1ml) from 
pharmacia worked well in my lab - elute w/ similar conditions). 
control elution in both procedures by A280.
(you could cascade both procedures if you like)
Then immobilize your purified AB to the material of your desire 
covalently or onto protein A. 
You might have to play a bit with it, 
it might happen that your AB wont let go your protein once bound to 
Good luck!
