Chemokines at an affordable price?

We would like to do some work with a variety of chemokines using our
microphysiometry technology for functional cellular assays.   But the
chemokines are awfully expensive when purchased from a standard commercial
source:  typically $175 per 20 ug, which works out to around $7x10^10/mole.
We'd most likely be interested in ~10 nmole or ~100 ug quantities of a
variety of chemokines.

Can anyone suggest a more inexpensive source or a pointer to information on
producing them yourself by recombinant means?

Thanks much.
