How can I obtain some activin for my developmental biology class?

Dear Colleagues,
I am planning to teach developmental biology next semester. This class has not been taught in 3 years at my institution. I am hoping to include a lab on mesodermal induction but also on induction of heart using activin. Where can I find an affordable source of activin (my class budget is under $500, yikes)? Does anyone actively make this in their lab anymore???
Thanks for any advice you have!
