IMO this is not surprising because the EDTA will complex the Ni and
remove it from the column. Either look for another chelator, include
a dialysis step or reverse the order of the columns (i.e. Ni first,
M1 then).

(BTW, I'd be curious how much M1 antibody you need for a column. Must
be pretty expensive...)
