Either crosslink the antibody to a carrier (e.g. agarose beads) or use
denaturing isoelectric focussing instead of SDS-PAGE for separation.
What kind of detection are you using? With metabolically labelled 35S or
with 125I labelled proteins the presence of the non-radioactive Ig chain
would not interfere with detection.
