Over $60,000 even if the supplier is from China where most things are much cheaper.

What sort of quantity and purity are you looking at?

Even at $60 per peptide (not unheard of for 98% pure, you would be looking at $1,800 for a few milligrams or maybe $5,000 for a gram. If you don't need high purity, it's cheaper.

It is a peptide 30 Amino acids long right?, yeah 60.000 $ seems a bit steep to me, but it might depend on the sequence.

Check out ElimBio INC, they offered decent price on peptides, the turn-around time is pretty fast too.

The synthesi cost depends on below two factores
1. purity level
2. quantity

For example, 30 residues, the cost of 95%, 10 mg is higher than the cost 80%, 10 mg; but it seems cost-effective when you order 50 mg at 95% purity level.
