About Calcium binding proteins

Hi all,
      I am trying to purify the apo form of a calcium binding protein. I
have read that a de-salting column will help. But I am not quite sure
about the procedure. Can anybody help in the same ? 

Alternatively, should I try some strong chelating agents of calcium like
BAPTA etc. ? The protein is highly homologous to calmodulin and troponinC, 
in terms of affinity of calcium. So, I guess, the same methods applied to
these proteins for getting the apo-form should apply to my protein.
THanks in advance,

with regards
